Overview

The U436-06N-GBW USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C to Gigabit Ethernet NIC Network Adapter allows USB Type-C or Thunderbolt™ 3 computers, laptops and smartphones without an NIC (Network Interface Controller) to connect to a network or the Internet using an Ethernet cable. It’s a more convenient and less expensive way to connect to the network than opening your device and installing an internal Ethernet card. Connect the adapter’s USB-C connector to your device’s USB-C or Thunderbolt™ 3 port, and connect the adapter’s RJ45 port to your network or Ethernet cable. Just plug and play with no drivers or external power supply needed. It’s compact and lightweight for easy carrying in your laptop bag.

The USB 3.1 Gen 1 adapter supports full 10/100/1000 Mbps network speeds, allowing you to transfer a lot of data quickly and stream audio and video. Unlike traditional USB cables that can be attached only one way, the reversible USB Type-C male connector plugs into a USB or Thunderbolt™ 3 port in either direction for fast, fumble-free connection every time. Compliant with IEEE 802.3, 802.3u, 802.3ab and 802.3az standards. Supports 10/100/1000 auto-sensing, twisted-pair crossover detection, auto-correction and Wake-on-LAN power management. Compatible with Windows, Mac and Chromium operating systems. Backward compatible with previous USB versions.

Frequently Asked Questions

USB Type-C (or USB-C) is a new, smaller and very versatile connector with a reversible-plug that is capable of carrying data, video and power. USB Type-C is expected to eventually replace the USB Type-A and Type-B connectors currently in use. USB Type-C connectors are used in USB 2.0, USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1) and USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) applications.

Combined with the new USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard (also called SuperSpeed+), USB Type-C can transfer data twice as fast as USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1), up to a maximum of 10 Gbs. It supports USB Power Delivery, a new protocol that allows significantly more power to be provided over USB, up to 100W. Not all USB Type-C cables and devices support USB 3.1 Gen 1, USB 3.1 Gen 2, or USB Power Delivery, so make sure to check the specifications of your equipment to see what it supports.

Learn More: USB Type-C Cables and Adapters
Your device must have a USB Type-C port to accept a Type-C connector. Older USB devices can connect to a Type-C compatible phone, tablet, or laptop using an adapter cable (e.g. Type-C connector on one end and a Type-A or Type-B connector on the other). Some devices with USB Type-C ports still use the older USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1) standards. If you have a device with a USB Type-C port running USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), you can still use older peripherals since USB 3.1 Gen 2 is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1), USB 2.0 and USB 1.1. Conversely, if you have a SuperSpeed+ peripheral with a Type-C connector, you can connect it to a Type A port running USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1), USB 2.0 and USB 1.1.
